Transition Institute Follow-Up: Youth Action Planning 

Transition institutes provide an opportunity for young adults to learn about organizations and agencies that can help them prepare for their futures. It's often hard to navigate numerous education and adult service systems; knowledge and support throughout this process is crucial. Organizations like the state deaf-blind projects, parent centers, and the Helen Keller National Center can provide this type of support. Student planning, family engagement, and interagency collaboration are at the center of the institutes' structure. Perhaps the most concrete thing a young adult and his or her team will walk away with at the end of an institute is an action plan with activities, resources, timelines, and a negotiated plan for deaf-blind project follow-up. This is essential for any effective transition plan.

This article by Martha Veto, Carol Darrah, and Mike Fagbemi provides a great example of how the Georgia Sensory Assistance Project approaches action planning for young adults who have attended an institute.
